Jackie Payne was already a Grammy-nominated veteran blues singer when he began performing with acclaimed blues guitarist Steve Edmonson. The two share a love for the blues and for the lost art of performance that makes each concert exciting and full of energy. Payne's live shows often match the fervor and intensity of a fire and brimstone gospel revival, while Edmonson's melodic guitar playing channels legends such as B.B. King, Jimmie Vaughan and T-Bone Walker. Learn More

The fifth of the series of multi-cultural outdoor concerts brings violins and flutes weaving lilting melodies against the backdrop of driving Afro-Cuban rhythms. From the first note, you’ll want to jump out of your seat. The orchestra’s repertoire ranges from traditional Danzón and Cha-Cha-Cha to the latest salsa and timba grooves with surprising twists: you should hear their spin on the old church tune “Golden Slippers.” As one critic put it: “Imagine a blend of Tito Puente and a tango, and you'll begin to get an idea of the power and beauty of this music.”
The dance floor will be set, a pre-event Latin dance instruction will get you in the mood and, cocktails, dinners from Sol Food available on-site, dancing, and playground makes for fun for the whole family. All outdoors under Marin skies.
This is an outdoor concert. Please dress accordingly.
Beer, wine, signature cocktails, juice, standard assortment of non-alcoholic drinks, sweets, savories, treats and dinners are available for purchase.
